It feels like fall in Texas:
Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News
More detective work has been done and people think they know who won The Golden Bachelor again. (Also, Reality Steve says he has the answer — click carefully, because he uses a picture and you can’t unsee.)

The Walking Dead folks are threatening us with more Fear the Walking Dead spinoffs, and Y’ALL: STOP. TOO MUCH. THAT’S ENOUGH.
Adam Sandler says that Roseanne Barr was originally supposed to sing “The Chanukah Song” on Saturday Night Live, but that she declined, insisting that he sing it because it was his song.
Right now, you can get a subscription to Max with ads for $2.99 a month for six months; Paramount+’s essential tier for $1.98 a month for three months; or Hulu with ads for .99¢ a month for 12 months.
Although: apparently Paramount+ cut 1,472 movies from its library over the past year, so.
Elon Musk went ahead with his dumb lawsuit against Media Matters for pointing out that sometimes ads from big companies show up alongside Nazi content on Twitter. Good luck with that, Elmo. (That said, he did file the lawsuit in North Texas, so … you never know.)
And in other erroneous lawsuit news: The Former Tweeter-in-Chief is suing MSNBC, Newsweek, CNBC, Reuters, The Daily Beast, the Miami Herald and its executive editor Alex Mena, Mediatie, The Hill, The New York Daily News, the Daily Mail, Axios, The Hollywood Reporter, Salon, Deadline, and Miami Herald for saying that Truth Social lost $73 million when it only really lost $31 million.
The former president of Univision is NOT AMUSED by the network’s handling of Former President Build the Wall.
Totally cool, very reasonable. Hey, have you checked on your voter registration status anytime recently? You know, to make sure you’re still eligible to vote and are in the right district and stuff? No reason, just curious.
Nothing to see here, just the former Gorsuch law clerk touted as Trump’s next attorney-general, threatening to indict, detain, & deport me (for what?) & put Tim Miller, who is gay, in a women’s prison.
Nothing at all unconstitutional, fascistic, or bigoted about any of this. 🤷🏽♂️ https://t.co/yNuLo2ZMgD

Sean “P. Diddy” Combs was sued for rape and abuse by his former long-term girlfriend R&B singer Cassie. She accused him of all sorts of horrific acts, including assaulting her; drugging her and forcing her to have sex with sex workers while he videotaped the acts; blowing up another rapper’s car; dangling one of her friends over a balcony; and making her carry his gun in public. It was a whole lot. So much, in fact, that Combs settled with her 24 hours after she filed the suit. DAMN, DIDDY. So … you did it? You basically admit that you did all that shit? Because I have never seen anyone settle a lawsuit like this that quickly, friend.
As this piece from Collider points out, Combs’ abusive behavior was on full display on his reality show, Making the Band, and a number of the artists from the show, including Aubrey O’Day, have been calling him out for years now.
Comedian Matt Rife, who had been TikTok’s boyfriend and very popular with female audiences, opened his recent Netflix special with an unfunny domestic violence joke. TikTok was not amused. As others pointed out, it was a feeble attempt to prove that he can be a dude’s comedian, too:
“One of the biggest misconceptions of things I get ridiculed online for is people are like ‘oh, he only has a female fan base,’” Rife said. “In the beginning yes, because I did blow up on TikTok which is very female dominant…So, I get that perspective. But when you come to the shows, I mean, it’s 50/50. It’s couples coming out. It’s groups of dudes who are coming. And that’s one thing that I wanted to tackle in this special was showing people that like despite what you think about me online, I don’t pander my career to women.”
“I would argue this special is way more for guys,” he continued. “I wanted to make this special for everybody. I pride myself on making my comedy for everybody. It’s not for a specific demographic. I think if people would just give it the chance without going into it and being like ‘oh, only girls like him’ or ‘people only like his face.’ If you give it an opportunity, I think you’d like it.”
Holly Madison doesn’t need to defend herself for not acknowledging Hugh Hefner’s death because fuck that guy.
